9/4/2017 League WWFC 4 v 4 Cov Jag

Wellesbourne Wanderers U16 4 - 4 Coventry Jaguar Youth U16
WW entertained Cov Jag on a very warm and sunny morning. Jags were immediately on the attack and hit the post in the third minute. The first twist in what was to become an increasingly surreal encounter came after 9 minutes. Tom made the first of several dangerous runs down the right, forcing a corner. This was delivered by Joe M and met on the half volley by Richard, tipped onto the crossbar and hacked clear. A great save but unfortunately not by the Cov keeper ! After a short delay for the issue of a red card for deliberate handball, Joe M coolly converted the penalty for 1-0. Jags were understandably rocked by this setback and WW went close to doubling their advantage on 12 minutes, Richardís corner headed against the post by Miles and then cleared off the line. Richard then released Oli who was twice denied by the Cov keeper. Tom made another surging run down the right wing, finding Richard who curled his effort wide of the far post. This was to be Tomís final contribution in a very lively cameo as he limped off with a back problem. On 22 minutes, Joe Mís sublime cross-field ball released Harry who cut in from the left and unleashed an unstoppable drive into the far corner for his first WW goal and 2-0. Cov Jag rallied immediately and their #15 missed his kick completely at the far post with the goal gaping. On 28 minutes Jags again went close with a header from a corner. HT 2-0, WW in control and little sign of what was to follow.
Wellesbourne came back out for the second half and completely failed to pick up the pace. Jags were revitalised and immediately on the front foot and Joe tipped away a long range effort. From the corner a free header was powered home and Coventry were right back in it. It now looked like WW were the team a man short as Cov cut through a re-shuffled midfield at will. At the back Roger, Sacha and Matt battled to stem the tide as Jags went close on several occasions, also striking the post on the hour. Oli then was sent through one-on-one at the Jags keeper but failed to get any kind of shot away. With Rogerís enforced substitution the dam burst with three Coventry goals in ten minutes. Firstly possession was needlessly gifted away on the left and swept downfield and into the net within three seconds, then an off target effort deflected in for an own goal. On 75 minutes it was 2-4 as WW failed to clear another attack, and the game looked completely beyond a stunned home side. Perhaps in anticipation of the reception they would get from the coaches at full-time, Wellesbourne attempted a late rally. Good work down the right from Woody and Will B saw Oli head home the cross from close range on 79 minutes. So little time left but Jags were suddenly in panic mode as Richard worked himself an opening in the Cov area but fired narrowly over. That should have been the final chance but the resultant goal kick was returned back into the area and deflected past the keeper by a Cov defender. Full-time a remarkable 4-4, including one red card, one penalty and two own goals, one to each side. MOM votes were pretty much based on the first half performance only, joint third place Richard and Will B, joint winners Miles and Joe M.
